Diamond memories: The greatest hits of a four-day extravaganza

From the stoicism of the monarch - who stood for four drizzling hours on the Royal Barge to greet the ecstatic throngs - to eccentric performer Grace Jones hula-hooping her way through a set, the Diamond Jubilee has left memories that will be cherished for years to come.

Dazzling soprano Katherine Jenkins kicked off proceedings with a rousing rendition of God Save the Queen at the Derby, and the smile on the Queen's face first glimpsed as she followed the races remained a permant fixture over the four days, despite the setback of Prince Philip's hospitalisation.

Even the British weather didn't put a dampner on proceedings as the nation's favourite grandmother celebrated a remarkable achievement with her adoring public.
